About this listing
Stylish one bedroom self contained villa with Alpacas at your windows while overlooking the vineyard. Th property is set within a quiet secluded valley only 5 minutes drive away from the Yarra Valley's famous food and wine epicentre. Adult only.
Accommodation is in a refurbished satellite tracking station which was used to broadcast the 1984 Olympic Games. Massive windows provide vineyard and mountain views.
The studio cottage caters for 2 guests. Also on the property a 2 bedroom apartment can accommodate up to 4 adults and a 3 bedroom apartment can take up to 6 adults. Regretfully we do not cater for children under the age of 12 years. Note, sometimes the Alpacas may be in a nearby paddock rather than at the window (we do need to let the grass regrow)
Guests are free to explore the property, lots of wildlife, alpacas and cows in the paddocks, walks with fantastic views over vineyard and mountains beyond.
Interaction with guests
Guests can choose to either chill out in the privacy of their apartment or chat to the owners who live well away but on the 35 acre property. There is always some thing happening with seasonal work in the vineyard. Estate wine is available and we offer personalised WINERY TOURS for up to 4 guests touring the valley's cellar doors, boutique breweries and cider houses in a classic luxury vehicle. (licensed for charter)
The Yarra Valley, just over an hour's travel by car from Melbourne is synonymous with food and wine! ... and we are in the middle of it!
